Flores Guatemala

Photo Essay: A Day In Flores, Guatemala

Flores was our first taste of Guatemala. After nearly three weeks on Caye Caulker it was a huge difference to enter this small town in Guatemala. Once again, we had to adjust our minds and ears to the Spanish language and our eyes to the old, colorful towns – a huge difference from the Caribbean paradise we left.

We instantly liked Flores. We stayed in the old part of Flores which is located on a small island in Lago Petén Itzá – a beautiful lake.

We were surprised how small the island actually is. Before long we’d walked the entire island and seen almost everything it had to offer. We only stayed for two nights and spent one whole day at the Tikal ruins, but we still feel like we experienced enough of Flores. (more…)

Yesterday it was Jonas’ birthday. We had a calm and lovely day on Caye Caulker. We had fry jacks for breakfast, hung out by the ocean, went for coffee and mini doughnuts, talked a lot about future projects, bought the bus ticket for Guatemala, worked a little, went for a walk around the island, had dinner with our favorite Goats, went for ice cream and just relaxed at our perfect little cabana.

But it was also our last day on Caye Caulker. And is night time came my mood just went downhill. I don’t want to leave. I really don’t want to leave!

Our visa expires today. We’ve bought the bus ticket. There’s really no turning back, but Caye Caulker has been treating us so well that I just don’t want to leave.  (more…)
